Biography

Robert Schertzer is an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Political Science at the University of Toronto and UTSC.

He is the author of The Judicial Role in a Diverse Federation: Lessons from the Supreme Court of Canada (University of Toronto Press, 2016) and co-editor of Nationalism and Conflict Management (Routledge, 2012). His work has been published in Nations and Nationalism, Commonwealth and Comparative Politics, the Canadian Journal of Political Science, Publius, and the International Journal of Constitutional Law.
